Abstract:

Describes the interwar xenophobia and antisemitism of the French people (including French Jews) which made possible the Vichy anti-Jewish measures. In Paris there were ca. 400 Jewish lawyers (out of 2,500); there was a high degree of hostility towards them in the traditional, conservative milieu. Surveys Vichy policy towards Jewish lawyers, the enactment of the statutes of the Jews, and their consequences for Jews in the legal profession. Asserts that members of the Parisian bar approved of the introduction of a numerus clausus, and later of the near total exclusion of Jews from the bar. Discusses the creation of the Commissariat Général aux Questions Juives, and the role of its chief, Vallat, and later, Darquier de Pellepoix, in the implementation of the Vichy laws. Concludes that the anti-Jewish measures imposed by the Vichy regime did not provoke protests among French lawyers. The Jews, in this profession as in the general population, were considered as unassimilable strangers, which was one of the reasons for the lack of public protest.
